Ken and Sue are providing donuts in the morning!
There are a couple cards to sign, one to Lucy Johnson#93, her Brother passed away and one to Sharyl Krantz#63, her Mother died, also Augustin Torres#50, surgery, also a notice on the board that it's Ken Eshelman's 92nd birthday!
We had a nice turn out for Happy Hour last night, over 24 folks showed up.
The last few morning have been beautiful, low humidity and I even felt the need for a light jacket yesterday morning. This morning it was near 69 and will get pretty hot this afternoon. Possible some rain for Mon. or Tues. We never got a drop Thursday night when lots of places received a nice amount. It seems to skip us or fizzle out before it gets here. A brief shower and a few times where it just messed up the car with a few drops.
Around the park....
The guys have planted a couple Palms near the front of the office, they've been digging up that concrete where the horseshoe pits are, and no, no one will tell me what's going in there? Just went to get the mail and they're putting some new nos. on mailboxes that need them.
Monday for Memorial Day we are having hotdogs and all the trimmings, plus bringing a dish to share, I think Carmen and Diane Bernier are heading that with Darlene Bryant.

This pretty scene greeted me as I brought Heidi out for a walk this morning...


The yards here in the park are all looking very nice, the mowing people doing very good.

May 19th


We sure have a quiet park this summer, it's been hard just to get 4 to play Canasta! some tic playing in the evenings.

This morning Del and Bev Telfor provided the donuts. Del has been in the hospital, they still never figured out what his problems have been. Up and down temperature. Patty Lamp was in re-hab with hip problems, she's home and doing much better.
Bobby is doing really good following kidney stone removal.

There's a card for all to sign for our maintence man, (Roberto Ramos) Son, Michael, graduating from College.
Also a card for Mary Christianson, who fell and broke her arm in 2 places

Weather here has been hot and windy! High today, 95 and humid! We are in a drout here, but 50% chance of rain Sun. or Mon. Yards are so dry.
And as usual mornings and evenings are lovely.

Judy Dekoning is here for a week or so. she said it has been cold and rainy in Illinois.She was saying that the temperature one day was 46 and she had the furnace going and it was raining so....She had flying time to use up so decided to come down here for a visit!

That's about it for now!
